Best Renewable Project: Martin Next Generation Solar Energy Center, owned by Florida Power & Light, Indiantown, Fla.

Florida Power & Light’s Martin solar project is a 75 MW concentrating solar power plant located on 500 acres adjacent to FPL’s Martin natural gas-fired power plant. The $400 million project uses 200,000 parabolic mirrors to generate 155,000 megawatt-hours of power annually; 6,816 12-meter Gossamer frames; 1,136 Solar Collector assemblies; 190,000 mirrors and 142 solar field loops. Each Gossamer frame had 624 parts.

The team of Lauren Engineers & Constructors – the EPC contractor – and FPL developed a special handheld tool for frame assembly made to hold a retainer clip in position for a locking pin, thus eliminating the potential of injuries from holding the retainer clip by hand.
